Ready to fall in love on your next holiday? No, we’re not talking about meeting that special someone, although the people of Hervey Bay are very nice. We mean the beachfront town itself.
Named after an English Casanova, this laid-back destination is the perfect place to start a Great Barrier Reef trip or visit the World Heritage Site of Fraser Island. You can also stay in town and enjoy the calm, glass-like ocean that’s perfect for wading, stand-up paddleboarding or the perfect selfie.
The key to it all? Wotif’s Hervey Bay car rental options, of course.
Ready to dive right into the culture? Head to the Urangan Jetty, the single most photographed object in the town, and chat up the fishermen. Give into “pier” pressure and throw a line in for yourself. You might just catch your dinner.
Want a closer view of some ocean critters? Take your ride from one of our Hervey Bay car hire options to the marina and climb aboard a dolphin-watching tour or a glass-bottom, coral-watching boat. Hungry? Stroll along the Esplanade and choose a waterfront restaurant to enjoy a meal before heading back to your Hervey Bay accommodation to recharge for the night.
Ready to visit the world’s largest island made completely of sand? Drive 25km south to Bingham and catch the ferry to Fraser Island. Or take one of our Hervey Bay car rentals around to the south of the island and stop by the pristine beaches and birdwatching marshes in Great Sandy National Park, 100km away.
And if you can’t get enough of the open road, keep going along the shore to check out the big city of Brisbane (300km south) and the Gold Coast beyond.
When you book right here on Wotif, your getaway can be anything you want. Turn our Hervey Bay holidays into a rollicking beach trip for the kids, an escape to the great outdoors or an epic Queensland road trip. Your savings are only limited by your imagination. So dream on!
